A new Dinky Door has appeared on a Cambridge street and this time it leads inside a tiny space rocket

Still on a mission to save the world, the anonymous artists behind Dinky Doors told the Cambridge Independent that they built the ship to help find the alien Supreme Leader who - fans will know - set them the task of cheering up humanity.

The ship, which is tucked away on Green Street in Cambridge, also has great green credentials.

“We have been picking salad leaves on a local farm and ended up with 42 tons of rocket,” explained Dinky Doors.

“So we’ve condensed it down to power a rocket fuelled rocket. Unfortunately the rocket is quite small because it is only powered by leaves, so we can't actually fit inside it either. We’re hoping someone knows some dinky people who could fly it and help find the Supreme Leader as we haven’t heard from them for some time.”

The artists have been supplying Cambridge with free public art for several years now in an attempt to make people smile.

“Our goal is genuinely to try and make people happy and whilst it started out very much as a hidden project and hardly anybody knew about it, I think that as time has moved on. More people have become aware of it, especially after the Moo Moo Tron cow we made for Cows About Cambridge.”

They also made a hare with a jet pack for a similar art trail in Southend.

“We do still like people to make their own discoveries about our work so we hope people will take a close look through the portholes of the rocket ship or even use their phones to take a picture through the windows,” they added.
